Our baby is 2! I can't believe it. I had a hard time when I kissed her goodnight last night. I do every night before one of my kid's birthdays. I feel like when I say goodnight and close the door, I'm saying goodbye to someone. Is that silly? I am just an extremely sentimental person I guess. I get sad when I think about how fast my little ones are growing and how I have no control of it. Time keeps ticking. I just kept thinking to myself, "This is the last time she'll ever be one" and would get all teary:) Silly me.
Cali is a sweetheart. She has added so much to our family-we don't know what we'd do without her! She is so cuddly, so spunky, so sweet, so soft, so funny, so beautiful and so smart. She is always making us laugh and smile, especially lately. She is learning so many words! Its so fun when they start to communicate. Her two newest are "poopoo" and "nake" for naked:) She pointed to a naked barbie last week and said, "nake" and then pointed to her bottom and said "poopoo." It was so hilarious. Aubrey and Ella are lovin it (and encouraging it:) Cali was making us laugh tonight and Ella said, "I'm so glad we have a baby Mama." It was so sweet and I couldn't agree more. Cali is also our most active baby so far:) For example, she constantly climbs on the dining room table and walks around on it, giving me a heart attack each time. She loves to try and sneak up the stairs when someone doesn't close the gate. She loves to sneak food out of the pantry(now we have a lock:) She is a sneaky little girl! She LOVES going outside to play in the backyard and when we drive up to a park she kicks her feet, gets so excited, and yells, "Park!!" She is also shy in her own way, but can also be pretty outgoing. She goes back and forth, which actually reminds me of myself. She loves other kids her age, as long as they aren't hurting her:), and always smiles at them and wants to be their friend. But with most adults she hides her face still. I love watching her little personality grow. She has qualities that remind me of both of her sisters, myself, and her daddy. A perfect little combo. Cali, we love you so much and feel so blessed to have you in our lives. You bring us so much joy and so many giggles! We hope you have a wonderful 2nd birthday! Happy Birthday Cali girl!
